Listener Opinions

    " My overall impression of this book was very good. I would like to share some things I liked and others I thought could be improved upon. The historical fiction setting and historical details of the early 1900's, including the realistic social struggle and varying attitudes between different societal classes, the clean romance between two of the main characters, and the suspense/mystery element of the story were all well done and, in my mind, definite pluses. The areas that could have perhaps used slight improvement were that, to me, the dialogue seemed a little stilted at times and the main characters a little bit too "perfect"; I would have liked to have seen a minor flaw or two and don't feel it would have made me turn against them in the least. I did enjoy the story immensely, and plan to read the other books in the "Mercy Falls" series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 2/20/2014

    " The ending surprised me a little...looking forward to the rest of the books in the series :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ivy | 2/14/2014

    " There were lots of plot holes, and it lacked some character development. That being said it was an interesting blend of historical fiction, a little mystery and a little romance. It was a fine book, but certainly not a great one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dianne | 2/12/2014

    " This story was definitely a light read. I appreciated the story line, although I thought the premise was somewhat unrealistic. I enjoyed the mystery surrounding the story and did not anticipate the ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathyred | 2/4/2014

    " I always wonder why Christian fiction always portrays the bad guys as a) unredeemably bad and b) relentlessly rude. Isn't there such a thing as deceptively smarmy? Other than that rant, this is a perfectly fine Christian historical romance. I won't count it as a gentle read, due to several murders and assaults "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Denise | 1/30/2014

    " This book was aggravating. The Christian messages felt fake and preachy though luckily the book was not saturated with them. The writing and transitions were jumpy, not fleshed out, and at times incoherent- just plain choppy. The opening of the book was rough. The only thing keeping me reading was my slight curiosity of the mystery. Not recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristen Talbert | 1/28/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book! A twist of mystery and romance made this a fast and hard to put down read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cori | 1/20/2014

    " I really wanted to like this book. I like the time period & setting - early 1900s. And I like the plot & idea of the story. However, I didn't like the writing. The characters were really flat/ one demensional & some passages were awkward. Its the first in a series. I'm not planning on reading the rest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiffany | 1/18/2014

    " I liked the story but had a hard time connecting to the story. I don't know why. It had a lot of great elements but I seemed to just struggle through it. The love story was fine but I had a hard time feeling any sizzle or connection between the two. Maybe it was me that was off. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Acarrawa | 1/3/2014

    " Fast-paced, easy-to-read, relaxing. This was my first Colleen Coble novel. I look forward to reading others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aimee | 1/3/2014

    " 3.5 stars This is light Christian fiction, which to me means it doesn't get preachy at all. I enjoyed the bit of mystery in this romance. I'm a fan of CA so the beach and lighthouse setting was like a piece of home. Nice, easy read that kept me interested from beginning to end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dgoll | 12/15/2013

    " Very relaxing read, just what I needed! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 11/17/2013

    " I love books like this because it contains both mystery and romance as well as some action. It is one of those books that you keep reading so that you can discover the answers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steph | 10/21/2013

    " My favorite of the series, love the history and mystery that overpower the romance. "

    " I loved it! I didn't see what was coming! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adele Clagett | 7/27/2013

    " The title of this book caught my attention (I have a soft spot for lighthouses), and I'm glad it did. This was a wonderful book to read, it was full of mystery, romance and at times, suspense. I enjoyed the lighthouse scenes and the time period (early 1900's). Very refreshing! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Samm | 4/14/2013

    " It was okay, but didn't hold my interest like I would like a book to do. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hannah | 6/30/2012

    " It was good, but at some points I found it unbelievable, when it was trying to be believable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 11/6/2011

    " I love Colleen Coble books (mysteries) and I love lighthouses. This book, set in 1907, was more of a romance than a mystery but I did enjoy reading it. "
